Navan: YOU ask the experts about YOUR diabetes
May 19, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to sit face to face with the diabetes experts outside of a hospital setting to learn more about your condition? Diabetes Ireland are delighted to offer you this opportunity. We have gathered 4 experts from a variety of fields in the area of diabetes and we are giving you the opportunity ask them YOUR questions. To do this, join us in the Ardboyne Hotel, Navan, on Tuesday the 19th of May from 7-9pm
On the night, each speaker will give a 5 minute introduction on their topic. Following this, you and fellow attendees will be divided into small groups (no more than 13) at a round discussion table. Our experts will move from table to table in rotation for 15 minute Q&A sessions. This is your chance to ask them anything you like about your diabetes, or just listen.
The experts and their topics are:
• “The Type 2 Medications Basket; Understanding the role of the medications I take”
Dr Shah, Consultant Endocrinologist, Our Lady’s Hospital, Navan
• “Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose, what do I need to know?”
Sinead Hanley, Senior Dietitian, Diabetes Ireland
• ‘Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important’.
Moira Haran, Community Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Primary Care
• “Tips for self-management of your feet’
Richard Henry, Senior Podiatrist, Diabetes Ireland
To take advantage of this invaluable opportunity register today by completing the form enclosed or call Sinead on 1850 909 909. It is €5 to register and please note that we have a maximum of 50 places so register now and do not miss out. There will be a short tea/coffee break at 8pm.
